Bride Wars

Every so often Hollywood comes out with a movie based around the fascination that women have with their wedding day. The newest blockbuster, Bride Wars, opened this weekend just in time for all those brides preparing for their own upcoming spring and summer nuptials.
Bride Wars stars Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway are two life-long friends who both get engaged and want their weddings at the Plaza. After their high end wedding planner accidentally plans both weddings at the Plaza for the same day, the war is on.
The whole idea for the movie is a little far fetched, at least based on the brides that we've seen. Imagine two best friends trying to sabatage each other's wedding day! However, Bride Wars promises to be a great comedy for brides, or anyone who has ever dreamed of becoming a bride.
Here are a few other great wedding movies, just in case Bride Wars puts you in the mood to rent and watch some more:
My Big Fat Greek Wedding, 27 Dresses, Wedding Crashers, The Princess Bride, Monster in Law, My Best Friends Wedding, Father of the Bride, Runaway Bride, and The Wedding Singer....just to name a few.

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
